Gila River Logic & Leadership Academy

Logic & Leadership Academy

At Arizona State University

What is the key to success for teens and young adults? Success isn’t just about doing well in school or getting into a good college. Being successful is about discovering your strengths, mastering your emotions, and adding value wherever you go. A child is only truly successful when they learn to be happy and confident with who they are.

Happiness is the goal at this one-of-a-kind youth summer camp! Hosted at Arizona State University, the Logic, Leadership, and Life Skills summer program is the only place where teens can complete licensed professional development training. We’ve taken college-level curriculum and turned it into a fun and interactive 4-day course. Students will learn about college prep, explore ASU campus, and get individualized attention from our certified teen life coaches.

Session A: May 31st – June 3rd

Our team of instructors is unlike any other mentor you will find for teens. Each instructor has completed their doctoral program in advanced areas included engineering, supply chain management, project management, and professional development. In addition, instructors must complete, at minimum, five years of industry training and licensing. This ensures that what we teach is relevant to current professional settings. On top of completing their training, our instructors also volunteer in our teen life coaching and success coaching program. Together, they have worked with thousands of students in classrooms, presentations, and one-on-one coaching. Click on the coaches pictures below to learn more about them.
